2014 Super Middleweight Sportbike Shootout

Suzuki defined the modern sportbike in 1985, practically creating the superbike class along the way with its GSX-R750, surrounding it with 600cc and 1000cc siblings to comply with racing regulations.

The brilliance of that decision has now been realized, as Italy has decided to play in between the 600cc and 1000cc bookmarks. Both Ducati’s 899 Panigale and MV Agusta’s F3 800 throw racing regulations to the wind in favor of finding that balance between

DJ MotoVlogs says:

After test riding a GSXR I am just amazed at how good the ergonomics are for a sports bike. I hear the S1000RR is also comfortable so thats what I want to try out next. “Squids” really do give the GSXRs a bad name, they are awesome bikes.

Martin Lee says:

i picked 675 , very slim around traffic and filtering …….

Terry Flick says:

Stopped when the ad popped up.

jezuz12345 says:

That is one well put together test, thanks! I’d go for the MV for my trackday needs and Sunday rides, love that bike!

Fast and agile says:

u guys cant ride!

Giorgos Avlakiotis says:

In my opinion,Suzuki has done a really good job by producing the Gsxr 750 all these years..The extra power & the easy ride of that bike is what most riders look for..

veteq101 says:

I am a big fan of MV Agusta, I own two of their bike, but I have to say that the way the power is delivered on the F3-800 scared me (Demo bike). At around 4000rpm it just lifts the front with very little throttle.

gregorio caragan says:

I would take any of these bike…just for the joy of riding. No need to hate…you can turn off the electronics and ride it with just your abilities.

Marcel West-Bailey says:

If you start singing Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol when the video starts it’s like a new age cover of the song

Yuriy M says:

I would stay with Ducati

Benjay1975 says:

love the outtro – nice one!

Kenneth balcarse says:

Is the ducati 899 good for 5 foot 3 teenager? Btw im 16 yrs old

The Ducatista says:

More than you can afford pal, Ducati!

Mikal Wright says:

Yamaha needs to bring back the R7!!!!

Christopher Zylstra says:

not putting up a link on-screen during review, and esp. at the end when you mention the scorecard, is a mistake I can’t imagine an excuse for – and I’m great at dreaming up excuses for anything! WTF?! no more forced errors if you want to survive.

h ru says:

i wish mv would offer a stripped down electronics package for the f3 675/800 would love to get one, but the closest service place is 250+ miles away, love the way triples sounds & makes it’s power, the daytona & f3 are tops

MMST says:

ducati man for life

bboy NumbaJuan says:

Ducatis sound like a lawn mower. Wack!!!

Alin Baraiac says:


danteisbrutal says:

bike video without bike’s sound? fail

javier mendizabal says:

I started with a GSXR 1000 and i love my bike! Suddenly i wanted to get the 1199 panigale but i think its more like “look i have a panigale etc maybe i get the ducati tricolore and of course ill keep my GSX R even thought at the end of the road its about the rider not the bike.

focke wulf says:

i would take the GSXR to me it is the perfect bike for my needs, i am not a fan of electronics just something else to go wrong and cost a fortune to repair. Now the MV is a sweet looking machine infact all the bikes they build are like works of art and the Ducati brand is just a name and i see them just like Harley a Look What I am Riding Bike that just like Harley are not worth the price IMO your taste may be different than mine. my bikes would be the GSXR 750, street triple R 675, Thruxton 900, BMW nine T and the Husqvarna FE 501 S Super Moto

Oliver Bumann says:

Can you get powerheelies with the 899 or is´t there enough power?

ROMEO says:

lap times?

Dolphins101 says:

Gixxers attract squids.

mike216ism says:

Had several gsxr 750 and would never buy anything over a Suzuki motorcycle. They have a customer for life. I love the control of a gsxr
